// manipulation of magic //

i have learned the art of disappearance at a far too young age,

performed sleight-of-hands of feelings, of love,

performed sleight-of-hands of feelings, of love, of hate,

to the point where i do not remember

which is the distraction

i have learned the art of disappearance at a far too young age,

learned that if i stick my thoughts

learned that if i stick my thoughts deep enough in my brain, i will start to believe they are not there as well.

learned that if i can hide my map

learned that if i can hide my map far enough up my sleeve,

i have learned the art of disappearance,

i have learned the art of disappearance, or disappointment,

i have learned the art of disappearance, or disappointment, you could say,

i have learned the art of disappearance, or disappointment, you could say, at a far too young age.

because although i have mastered this art,

because although i have mastered this art, parts of me keep reappearing

because although i have mastered this art, parts of me keep reappearing in one form or another.

in one love or another.

okay so y'all probably hate me because i just disappeared (okay i didn't mean to make that pun, but i gotta admit it was funny) for so long, and i apologize sm, but i was working on my instagram poetry page (shameless self promo follow me @anastasiapoetry_ ) and honestly i had sooo much family stuff and i had summer classes and just, it was a lot

but, i deeply, genuinely apologize for falling off the face of the earth, i promise i will put out more consistent content if at all possible, but it probably won't be as often as before, ily all sm, so please be understanding because it's been rough, but i'm much better now

now that that's out of the way, i wanted to say that this is unedited (as of thursday) i plan on editing it tmrw (friday) but i wanted to stop putting off posting something and just wanted to put something out there

okay but highkey i missed all of you, so please comment how you are, anything that you're going through (if you're comfortable sharing), and anything on your mind because i want to (re)establish a connection with y'all bc y'all are a huge motivation to write and i value that a lot, so yea, ilysm and take care of yourselves xx much love xx
